handprinted decorations and homeware
East End Press is a printing and design studio based in the east end of Glasgow. We design colourful decorative objects for your home, and work with crafts people all over the world to create beautiful made objects using traditional crafts and processes We love colour and pattern, and make unique party and Christmas decorations to add some style to any occasion. We are inspired by folk art, traditional crafts and children's book illustrations.
Our work has always been inspired by the traditional crafts and folk art of other cultures so it was a natural progression, and a dream come true, to work with printers and crafts people all over the world. All products sold by East End Press are hand printed, hand painted or hand dyed- skilled human hands made these products individually with craftsmanship and care, and we think that is really special. We believe in treating and paying everyone who works with us fairly, and have personally visited all our manufacturing partners. To create out paper products we work with fair trade SEDEX certified printers in Jaipur. This means everyone involved in the supply chain is paid a fair wage and treated fairly and safely. We only use recycled paper in both our products and our packaging, and everything is printed with non toxic water based inks.
All of our products are designed in Scotland, where we work from a sunny studio in the east end of Glasgow. We have created unique designs for leading British gift stores including the V&A and the National Trust.
